Courtney Love has claimed that she gets "hit on" by actors who want to play Kurt Cobain in the film version of the Nirvana frontman's life.

Love made the claim in a new interview with Fashion magazine. A big screen adaptation of Cobain's life has been in development for many years with numerous actors linked to the lead role. Despite not naming names, Love says that she has information that "would blow your mind".

"I still get hit on by guys because they want to be cast in that Kurt Cobain biopic that's been in production for years," she says in the interview. "I could give you some [actors'] names that would blow your mind, but I am so not sleeping with someone under 38."

Elsewhere in the interview, Love claims that she deserves to be able to make a fresh start. "Listen, if [Orange is The New Black star] Natasha Lyonne can burn down a house and Robert [Downey Jr] can go to prison for two years, I deserve a second chance," she says.

Love has said that she will release her "amazing" new album this Christmas. According to reports, the former Hole frontwoman's LP has a working title of 'Died Blonde' and will be put out towards the end of 2013.

In May of this year, Love revealed that she had advertised for a bassist on internet listings site Craigslist and had received only one response. "I put an ad on Craigslist that said, 'Band in the style of Hole looking for bassist in the style of Melissa Auf der Maur'," she said. "I got exactly one response. There's just not a lot of chick bass players."
